how firm a foundation

(Suggested Capo 2)

C                                                               (G)

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

    C                   Am               G            C

Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!

        C                  Am                  F                   G

What more can He say than to you He hath said,

    C                     Am          G               C

To you who for refuge to Jesus hath fled.



    C                                                         (G)

"Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,

      C              Am                 G                     C

For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;

       C                       Am                      F                   G

I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to stand,

     C                     Am             G             C

Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand."



    C                                                                  (G)

"When through the deep waters I call thee to go,

       C               Am             G           C

The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;

  C                   Am                F                   G

For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,

    C                     Am          G                C

And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress."



    C                                                              (G)

"The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,

    C             Am          G              C

I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

        C                       Am                F                   G

That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,

     C               Am             G          C

I'll never, no never, no never forsake!"
